Answer: You might have yourself a wild strawberry patch but you should be sure to get a positive ID before tasting this or any wild berry. If they are truly wild berries they probably won't get much larger - the store-bought varieties have been bred from wild forms to produce much larger fruit, but it's often less flavorful than the tiny wild fruit. If you want to be absolutely sure of the identity of the plant, you can send a leaf and flower along with a description to your county agricultural extension service (call them at 743-4174 for the correct address). Enjoy!
